Shabby Chic Layout .....

... Just a quick post to show you what I made today.  I attended a class to make a Shabby Chic Scrapbook page; our teacher was Valerie Brincheck.  I had such a fun day - lots of super ladies attended and we all came away with some beautiful pages. 

I used a photo of my Great Grandfather, Ernst Theodore Lobek, and my Great Grandmother, Isabel Denning - it's their engagement photo.  I never met them, but I'm so pleased to have a photo of them.  Here's the layout before adding colour.







And here's the same page once it had been spritized with a few mica sprays - so pretty!


I normally go for shades of blues, greens and purples, so this was a total change for me.  To be fair, the whole class was right out of my comfort zone!!  But I had so much fun.  We started by stamped a selection of images around the edge of the cream card and embossing them all with clear powder.  We then selected all our embellishments and did a layout - the cream one above.  Then I took a photo of the layout, as the next stage was to disassemble the page and start to glue and reassemble it!!  My finished page is pretty much as I wanted.  I'm so pleased how this turned out!  I think I'm going to have another go at this type of art!

Wow - what an amazing difference between the before and after! I liked the layout anyway, but the colors really add another layer of beauty to it. Very pretty. ;-)
